Most milkshakes are filled with sugar and preservatives of all sorts. Even though they may taste delicious, they aren’t that great for your body. If I am a lover of certain desserts, I am always on the lookout for a healthier version. This recipe is a hit in my house. It’s a vegan plant based milkshake, but you wouldn’t know it by the taste.
